Out-of-contract Tiger Jack Graham has garnered interest from two teams, and now another team has reportedly entered the discussion as a potential landing spot.

With Graham yet to sign on with the Tigers, AFL Media is reporting that Carlton have entered the race and are keeping a close eye on the situation.

It’s also been reported that Essendon and Adelaide are interested in the 2017 premiership on-baller.

The Blues are seeking an extra big bodied midfielder that can help Patrick Cripps on the inside. Matt Kennedy has been used next to Cripps at stages this year, but hasn’t had a consistent run at it.

Experienced heads Ed Curnow and Marc Murphy have stepped up where needed, but top draftee Paddy Dow has been unable to crack into the side which has made the need for further midfield depth a priority, and Graham could be a piece to their midfield puzzle.

Graham, 22, was a big part of the Tigers 2017 premiership team, kicking three goals in just his fifth game of AFL.

He played a big part in helping the Tigers to a Grand Final in 2019, but unfortunately missed the 2019 premiership win after suffering a dislocated shoulder in the Preliminary Final against Geelong.

Graham is averaging 18.3 disposals, 3.8 tackles and 3.8 inside 50s since his return back into the Tigers line up in round 12.
